Manchester United’s pursuit of Gleison Bremer has been ongoing for months, with recent reports adding intrigue to the situation.
During the summer transfer window, the Red Devils were believed to be frontrunners for the defender, with Juventus quoting a hefty fee of €60 million.
However, Erik ten Hag’s failure to bolster the defense during the summer has had significant repercussions for the team this season.
As reported by Calcio Mercato last November, Manchester United have maintained their interest in acquiring Bremer.
In the current campaign, Bremer has showcased his defensive prowess for Juventus, prompting the Bianconeri to seek a new contract and subsequently raise his valuation.
According to CM, Juventus now demand a minimum fee of £59.6 million (€70 million) to part ways with the Brazilian international.
The 26-year-old has been a standout performer, making 23 appearances across all competitions and contributing to 13 clean sheets. Additionally, he has scored two goals during the season.
Bremer earned his senior international debut two years ago and featured twice for Brazil at the FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
With Manchester United’s defensive vulnerabilities evident – having conceded 29 goals in 21 Premier League matches – the potential acquisition of Bremer could address crucial gaps in their backline.
As deadline day approaches and United prepare to face Wolves, the question remains: Should Manchester United meet Juventus’ asking price of £59.6 million to secure Bremer’s signature?
